Parasites are organisms that live off other organisms, or hosts, to survive.
Some consume your food, leaving you hungry after every meal and unable to gain weight. Others feed off of your red blood cells, causing anemia. Some lay eggs that can cause itching, irritability, and even insomnia.
Parasitic infections are a big problem in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Examples of parasites include roundworms, tapeworms, pinworms, whipworms, hookworms, and more.
These are the main symptoms of parasitic infestation:
- Itching at the anus
- Appetite loss
- Belching or flatulence after a meal
- Bad breath
- Swollen belly
- Swelling at eye level
- Blood or mucus in the stool
If you have tried countless approaches to heal your gut and relieve your symptoms without any success, a parasite could be the underlying cause for many of your unexplained and unresolved symptoms.
However, there are certain foods that can eliminate intestinal parasites.
- Lemon and mint – make a tea of peppermint, salt, and lemon juice and consume it.
